  • Super soph Mitch Lewis leads Naperville North

  • Gumbus gives Hornets a senior presence

    Austin Rivers has strong game against his former team amid cool reception

  • Joffrey Brown, St. Joseph come up big on defense in second half

    WESTCHESTER For the better part of 2 ½ quarters, St. Joseph struggled against Mount Carmel. The Chargers were committing sloppy turnovers and allowing the Caravan easy shots. It was not the way the players had expected their Senior Night. After a...
